Pro-Life organizations have officially moved on to newer (and creepier) tactics. And we’re not afraid to say that it’s giving us a case of the heebie-jeebies.

In an interview with Live Action, Copley Advertising CEO John Flynn explained how he planned to market his client Bethany Christian Services, an adoption agency, to women planning on getting an abortion. He said his plan would “target Planned Parenthood clinics, abortion clinics, methadone clinics and high-risk areas,” including New York, Chicago, and Pittsburgh.

“We are very excited to bring our mobile marketing capabilities to the pro-life community,” Flynn said.

Wait, it gets worse. Because Flynn’s “plan” has already taken effect.

New York Magazine’s The Cut reports that Copley Advertising has targeted 140 abortion clinics in New York City, Pittsburgh, St. Louis, Richmond, and Columbus in the last few months alone.

Because women who decide to get an abortion aren’t already facing what’s most likely an emotional and possible difficult decision, Copley Advertising has decided to make things even worse.
